ReedPOP has announced that this year's New York Comic Con (NYCC) will also include an event for prose books titled BookCon. ReedPOP has done several BookCon events in the past, but this will be the first time it's done coinciding with NYCC. While NYCC will take place October 6 through 9 at the Javits Center, BookCon will be held nearby at Hudson Mercantile. All NYCC badge-holders will be admitted into BookCon.
“BookCon @ NYCC is a testament to the continued success of New York Comic Con as the Show grows beyond the Javits Center,” said Lance Fensterman, Global Senior Vice President of ReedPOP. “We are continuously striving to reach new audiences and provide more of the programming and events that Fans are looking for and the robust lineup of authors and events at BookCon @ NYCC will allow us to do just that. It’s a privilege to connect leading publishers and authors with throngs of NYCC Fans and to unite two great New York City events for our Fans to experience.”
Headlining guest of New York Comic Con's BookCon are R.L. Stine, Danielle Page, and Ann M. Martin.
